Christmas Carol Megaways slot REVIEW

Christmas Carol Megaways ReviewVisually, we’ve seen better presentations of the classic Dickens story. For those who don’t know, it’s about the old miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, being visited by the ghost of his former business partner during Christmas, as well as the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. Spoiler alert: Scrooge is transformed into a more kind and forgiving person in the end, but the same can hardly be said about this game.

The math model is about as stingy as the grumpy old man it portrays, and it can seriously take a toll on your bankroll. If you like the game Christmas Carol Megaways is a reskin of, you might enjoy the added possibility of purchasing the bonus round available here (not for UK players). You can place bets between 20p and £100 per spin, which is a better bet range than many other megaways titles. As a seasonal title this is pretty solid, but it will stand the test of time as a well as a christmas tree on January 1st.

Christmas Carol Megaways Features

The features are exactly the same as in Great Rhino Megaways, except that non-UK players now have a bonus buy option. First of all, you need to decide if you want to go with the Ante Bet option. You will then pay 25 % extra per spin, but your chances of triggering the bonus round is doubled as more scatters are added to the reels.

The Cascading Wins feature makes winning symbols disappear from the reels, and these are replaced by new winning chances dropping from above. The process repeats as long as you keep winning.

You need 4 of the Scrooge’s pocket watch scatters on the same spin to trigger the Free Spins round here. Each additional scatter you land will add 4 extra spins to your tally, and you will be presented with 4 bonus round options as follows:

15 spins with the progressive win multiplier starting at 1x.

10 spins with the progressive win multiplier starting at 5x.

5 spins with the progressive win multiplier starting at 10x.

Mystery Choice - between 5 and 15 free spins and a multiplier between 1x and 10x.

You can land scatters on the top reel only during the bonus round, and you get 5 extra spins if you land 3 scatters at the same time. There is no cap on the number of spins you can get this way, and the progressive win multiplier will increase with +1 for each cascading win. The multiplier does not reset on losing spins, and there is no upper limit as for how high it can go.

If you’re looking for a gift to give yourself in the holidays season, you might wanna check out the bonus buy option. It will cost you 100x your stake, and this gives you at least 4 scatters on the next spin. However, as already mentioned, this feature is not available for UK players.

The 200 Spins Christmas Carol Megaways Experience

We decided to play with the Ante Bet switched on, and we triggered the bonus round after a while. We went with the 10 spins and 5x starting multiplier option, and won a decent amount. However, we were not quite happy yet, so we purchased the more volatile 5 spins option right after. You can see how it all played out in the edited 200 spins highlights video below.

Review Summary

Being a reskin of Great Rhino Megaways, you pretty much know what to expect from Christmas Carol Megaways if you’ve played Pragmatic Play’s megaways debut slot. The Christmas theme is nicely done with animated symbols, and the famous ghost story adds a bit of depth to your spins. The 20,000x potential is still solid, and even more so since you can play with up to £100 per spin.

It’s not hard to understand that developers don’t feel like making something brand new each Holidays season, as games like this will hardly be played all year round. The bonus buy option (not for UK players) might attract the impatient punters though, but the Ante Bet feature also caters to people who don’t like to go too long between highlights.

Pros

Ante Bet doubles your chances of triggering the free spins

4 bonus round options with unlimited win multiplier

High volatility and 20,000x max win potential

Brand new bonus buy option

Cons

Reskin of Great Rhino Megaways

If you enjoy Christmas Carol Megaways you should also try:

Great Rhino Megaways - is a pretty obvious choice if you like the game at hand. This is the original game, and it has the same math model and features except the bonus buy option.

A Christmas Carol - is a visually solid Betsoft creation based around the same story. It comes with nice 3D graphics, and Past Winnings and Future Winnings free spin modes.

Golden Ticket 2. This brand new release from Play’n GO has a vintage circus theme. Like Christmas Carol Megaways, it is also a sequel that offers high volatility gameplay, and has variable RTP’s. Along with the Multiplier Wilds and Win Spin feature, the game comes with a great Free Spins feature that allows players to choose one of three different bonus games.
